appeal to their better nature if we could. if we could get something done on immigration, that would be awesome. if we could lift the sequester and put forth a budget that could get people back to work, that would be good. i'm not cynical -- >> i'm not cynical either, in this universe in which we live, you and some of your colleagues have an idea for something the president could actually do by himself to increase wages for working people. what is that? >> well, you know, there are about 2 million workers who work for federal contractors. these contractors pay people sub standard wage, $7.45, no benefits, people have been on these jobs for literally years, and an executive order could solve this problem, and so we wrote a letter to the president about two months ago asking him to do something about it. and i gave another letter today. and you know, i think he is not sincere. he gave a wonderful speech about income inequality today. and he urged congress to raise the minimum wage, but in this congress i think we're going to have to look at what the executive can do and doing som

incredible friend and spoken here about immigration and so i just always had a wonderful interaction here with the young people. >> let's play "hardball." you have graduate students here and faculty. there's a resistance among the young people to enrolling in the exchanges and getting involved in taking responsibility for their health care. what's your argument of why they should do that. >> first of all, i understand why people were resistant about going on a website that wasn't working right. fortunately, because of some very hard work, we've now got it to the point where for the vast majority of people it's working well. and my message to young people is, take a look for yourself. the truth is that most college-aged students, because of the law, can stay on their parents' plan and that may be the best deal for them and we've already insured three million people. and your first job where you don't have full health insurance benefits may mean that you stay on your parents' plan a little bit longer. but at some point, let's say when you turn 26, if you're between jobs or you've got a pass

the senate, comprehensive immigration reform one of them, the enda bill that came out of there, but it's been a tough slog. you've got a few weeks left in the year, and the notion that this is going to be prioritized, there's going to be this push by bipartisan senators to get tougher sanctions on iran when the white house is explicitly saying no to me, that looks -- i just don't understand. is it the case that senators are going home to their states and people are standing up at town halls saying we need stronger sanctions on iran? why is this such a priority? >> listen, you have 47 million americans who have lost food stamp benefits, who are potentially going hungry this holiday season, you have farms that are going to shut down some time next year without a farm bill being passed. you're exactly right, there are bigger priorities. now, what my friends on both sides of the aisle will say is that, no, wait, we need to do this right now so that if the negotiations fall apart some time next year, we're right there immediately with tough, new sanctions. well, the fact is, we can pass

a bizarro congress if they passed immigration reform. unfortunately we do not have one. we have john boehner's terrible do-nothing congress. if you're frustrated about that, you're not alone. a few nights ago democrats were calling for the passage of a comprehensive reform bill. they were sitting it the house gallery which got him reprimanded, and that's when the democratic congressman stepped in. >> the men and women spending their time here would not have to be in those galleries advocating if this house simply took up the bill. you think they want to be spending their time here, madam speaker? is what what you think? probably traveling at their own expense to washington? and you're saying we're addressing them, and that's what you're upset about, madam speaker? i want you to address the reason that they are here! they are here because our government is tearing apart their families, madam speaker. >> will the gentleman from colorado understand aull members -- >> i want the speaker to understand that the speaker is obstructing hr-15 from coming to the floor. >> that is pretty m
